A classic, nice, and reliable Weissbier.

Presentation: 33 cl brown capped bottle. Classic and slightly old fashion label with a golden framed scene of a rural Bavarian biergarten with the Paulaner branding. Small note on the back notes exclusive Paulaner brewing, and adherence to the Reinheitsgebot. Shows best before date 08/12, and 5.5% Alc. by Vol. Served in a Weissbier glass.

A - Hazy deep gold pour, rich frothy head, good retention, surface memory and lacing. Pity about the small bottle, which does not quite pay homage to the full Weissbier glass…

S - Nice nose, wheaty and yeasty, with classic notes of banana, clove, caramel…

T - Extended in the mouth with a nice yeasty wheat sense, longer caramel over the banana, clove, and an emerging bubble-gum dash…

M - Medium body, medium to moderate carbonation with a nice creamy sense…

O - Nice and classic Hefe-Weizen, easy and pleasing flow.

Notes: Maybe this would deserve higher notes on a different serving, but the small six-pack with the 33cl bottles is pretty versatile and this one typically works nicely socially, so well worth keeping an eye out for it. One of those that I had taken from granted among my reviews and if BG hadn't reminded me of it, I may have not made a note about it. Gracias :)

Beautiful, sweet, supple, refreshing. Just a few words I'd use to describe this beer in short to someone.

A - Pours out in an inviting way. Deep, honey shade with very cloudy texture. Big head initially that recedes to about a third-finger worth and sorta floats along the rest of the way.

S - Smells kind of light for a wheat beer I think. Hints of hops follow the fruity blast, leading you to initially expect a balanced, sweet beer.

T - And a balanced, sweet beer is what you get! Holy moly, this stuff is amazing. Rich, smooth, starts out with a touch of banana and some wheaty goodness, ends with a clove note and some mild lingering hops on the palate. Almost no bitterness, but a very crisp character, with a sort of buscuit undertone.

M - the perfect heft for the perfect hef! This stuff hits the tounge thick and then the carbonation fizzes up, and by the time you take your swallow, it's become a very refreshing smooth liquid that you can't help but keep drinking.

A wonderful hefeweizen, captures all the enjoyability of the style.
